Gift Ideas for Coffee and Tea Lovers [Shopping]
If any of your friends or families are caffeine addicts like me, I am sure they will love any of these gifts. Instead of jumping on a mall store website, visit one of my (favorite) recent finds, Charles & Marie. They have a phenomenal collection of all things hip on one site. If it were up to me, I would have posted everything, but I narrowed it down to these mugs:
If you are picky as me about coffee, this mug is perfect, since it omits writing coffee instructions for the person who offers to refill your cup. Just point at the lovely coffee pantone and bam, perfect milk/creme to coffee ratio. US$20.00
One of the reasons I do not drink tea is because it is too much effort. Properly twirling the tea bag string around my stirring spoon always ends up disastrous, with tea droplets splattering around my mug. Enter Tea Code. Not only are they adorable, the silicone buttons to tie the tea bag string around is brilliant. They also come in four different shapes. US$27.00
I’m not a paper cup
As juvenile as this may sound, I am a huge fan of the sippy tops of paper cups. But as the world becomes more green, I am afraid paper cups and plastic tops will become obsolete for eco-friendliness. The “I’m not a paper cup” is my savior, since the paper cup is replaced with porcelain and the plastic lids with silicone. I’ve seen this around, but finally know where to purchase. US $20.00
The Mocha Dunk Mug
Perfect for merienda or the afternoon snack, bedtime nibble, or even in the morning for biscotti and coffee, The Mocha Dunk Mug is absolutely clever. They also subtly portion control, since the holder only holds a few cookies. This invention is a god send for someone like me, since open cookie packages are dangerous. Before I know it, half of the open bag of cookies… disappear. These mugs will force me to control my consumption. US$23.00
Also good for milk and cookies, too!
Another one of those: Why didn’t I think of this first?! products. The animal snouts on the bottom of the mugs are simple but hilarious. Who wouldn’t want one to show off their playful side? US$23.00
Choose from: a dog, monkey, pig, rabbit, and a tiger
